Every business, regardless of size or industry, has at least one legal requirement to follow when destroying sensitive and confidential documents. Following these standards not only protects your customers and employees, but also protects your company’s reputation and exposure. Pinnacle’s secure shredding services will certify that your company’s confidential information is destroyed in compliance with municipal, state and federal laws, preventing costly lawsuits and fines. Shredding also prevents PR nightmares—you don’t want to be in the “dumpster spotlight”! Read more about Legal Compliance >>
Pinnacle Provides NAID-Certified Shredding
The National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) certification program establishes standards for a secure destruction process for both mobile and plant-based operations. Standards include such areas as security, employee hiring and screening, the operational destruction process, and general liability insurance ($2,000,000 or more).
Shredding Prevents Information from Falling into the Wrong Hands
Professional shredding prevents identity theft and information from falling into the hands of competitors. Sensitive paperwork includes: customer lists, financial records, medical records, cancelled checks, tax records, memos, new product proposals, credit card receipts, etc. While shredding of all documents makes good business sense, some fall under stringent compliance laws and could leave you facing liability risks and fines, if not properly handled.

Many electronics contain sensitive data stored on hard drives and other storage devices, which need to be properly erased to protect against identity and intellectual property theft. Legally, electronic data must meet the same compliance laws as paper documents, and the normal process of erasing data does not ensure it is permanently deleted.
When you partner with Pinnacle Office Solutions, you won’t need to worry about compromising confidential information stored on your electronics—we guarantee your data security. Pinnacle’s e-waste partners remove and destroy all data and software in accordance with Department of Defense (DOD) standard DOD 5220.22M. Our partners are NIST 800-88 compliant and validated by an independent party to guarantee compliance.
Pinnacle is also committed to recycling used electronics in a manner that fully complies with state and federal laws, and protects the environment.
